living room

photo: http://www.esto.com/vecerka

A renovation of an ornate, parlor level brownstone apartment on the Promenade in Brooklyn Heights with views to the Manhattan skyline. The space was reconfigured to create long views through the apartment around a sculptural “core”, its modern detailing and materials acting in counterpoint to the grandeur of the original detailing.

Does anyone know where I might get a rug very similar to this one? - I believe this rug is Swirl by Paul Smith for The Rug Company. No longer available online.

It is the Paul Smith Swirl rug shown in this photo. I have seen similar imitations, but I cannot recall where. Quality, pattern and saturation were far inferior.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to New Classics: Paul Smith's Swirl Rug
Using the Swirl rug is an eccentric way to update a midcentury modern aesthetic.
The bowfront Georgian with large windows created rooms of great proportion, with highly decorative plasterwork for additional elegance. While people in the Georgian period dressed their windows with sumptuous curtains and pelmets, the absence of these allows for a very contemporary aesthetic with a Georgian backdrop.
Note the current architectural features. While modern architecture generally plays down embellishments, traditional architecture usually has more elaborate windows, ceilings, walls and doors. A redesign can highlight existing features, push them into the background or add new ones. Many of us love both modern and traditional styles. A transitional living room can help you get the best of both worlds. Try keeping your architectural features neutral in color and show off your style through your furniture. This stunning living room's architecture pays homage to the past but honors the homeowner's style with the iconic, eclectic furniture choices.More about transitional style

Beautiful room, reminds me of a relatives shooting lodge in the Scottish Highlands. This would be what I'd like to do with it! Clean modern white walls highlight the lines of the room (instead of flowery traditional wallpaper) and contemporary furnature in bright, curving lines add that note of contrast and sharpness. Its so fresh and clean, but made cosy and relaxing due to the soft lines and vibrant colour contrast against white.
